Arbor Park playground grand opening Sept. 16 in Wood Dale

Wood Dale, Ill.— The Bensenville Park District invites the community to the grand opening of the new Arbor Park playground, 475 E. Potter Street, on Saturday, September 16. This much-anticipated event promises a day of fun, games, giveaways and delightful activities for all ages.

The festivities kick off at 10 a.m. and offer a fantastic array of kids’ activities. The young ones can groove to tunes spun by a DJ, help build and paint a Little Library and get creative with painting rocks, picnic tables and engaging in recycling art. The creation of a vibrant rock garden will add an extra touch of community spirit to Arbor Park.

A special program is planned to honor the occasion at 1:45 p.m. The program will include park district commissioners and directors and local dignitaries as well as partners in the playground build. The event will celebrate community togetherness, concluding with the much-anticipated ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. As the ribbon is officially cut, Arbor Park Playground will be open to the public, providing a wonderful recreational space for Wood Dale residents of all ages to enjoy.

“Arbor Park is destined to become a beloved community asset,” says Bensenville Park District Executive Director Joseph Vallez. “The playground’s design and amenities offer a safe, engaging and welcoming environment for children and families. Its grand opening represents the culmination of dedicated efforts and community collaboration. Thanks to our partners, Discover and KABOOM!, and all the volunteers for making this playground a reality.”

For attendees’ convenience, parking with a free shuttle service is available at the nearby Deer Grove Leisure Center, 1000 W. Wood Street, Bensenville.

“The opening of the Arbor Park playground is a testament to the Bensenville Park District’s commitment to creating vibrant and inclusive spaces for its residents. The day promises not only a new recreational area but also a renewed sense of community pride,” Vallez adds.

The Bensenville Park District partnered with KABOOM!, a national non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring all kids have access to quality play spaces, and Discover® to build a vibrant and inclusive playground at Arbor Park. Community volunteers were invited to volunteer for the September 14 playground build. KABOOM! provided the necessary tools, guidance and support throughout the day.
